summer’s last color blast: yellow

Sunshine, lemonade, daisies, buttered corn… What do these lovely emblems of summer all have in common? Why, their citrus hue, of course.

The color yellow simply embodies the vibrant, bright, cheery feeling of summer. Get in on the shade with one of these fun items — all of which happen to look best paired with summer-bronzed skin — before this sun-drenched season surrenders to the cool temperatures and deep, earthy tones of fall.

Clockwise from the right: Red Valentino crepe shift dress,  our multiplEYE™ lash enhancing primer – nothing complements a burst of color like thick, sooty lashes – AJ Morgan Billie Jo glasses, Splendid Vintage Whisper cotton tank, Deborah Marquit lingerie set, Christian Louboutin brogues,  Tivoli Frost White model one radio, Forever 21 headbands, and the Peter Jensen Rabbit Head shopper.

what does your lipstick say about you…?

Need proof? Reach into your bag, pull out your lipstick and compare it’s tip to the seven most common shapes of used lipsticks, which are listed below. Then let us know how closely your personality matches up!

 

One steep angle: The Power Broker

She is self-confident, well-balanced, conscientious, and has a love for detail. With her drive and ingenuity, she gets over every hurdle. She has a perfect memory, doesn’t bear grudges, and is always the center of attention in her circle of friends.
